Yeast Nashville

Yeast Nashville

Yeast Nashville can cure any hangover. Isn’t that the key to a killer breakfast and brunch place? Bready, cheesey, savory, and sweet – if you need it, they have it! But we will say, the early bird get’s the worm: their specialty, kolaches, sell out fast! What’s a kolache? Heaven. Think of a danish but made with a sweet, yeasty bread instead of pastry dough. Kolaches can be filled with anything your heart desires. Yeast Nashville makes a wide variety – from blueberry and cream cheese to sausage links with cheese.

Burger Up Nashville

Burger Up

Burger up prides itself in using locally sourced beef from Triple L Ranch in Franklin for their impressive burger menu. First timers should try their classic burger and fries – the Triple L Classic comes with mustard, tomato, onion, pickles, and cheddar. Looking for a healthier option? Their marathon burger is one of the best veggie burgers in town.

The Urban Juicer

The Urban Juicer has two locations: 8th Avenue and Gallatin Road in East Nashville. f you’re looking for juice, they have something for everyone! Try the Well Being packed with spinach, kale, and ginger for your classic green juice fix or the Cool Down, a mix of pineapple, mint, and coconut water, for a refreshing afternoon snack. For something a little more filling, you can go the smoothie route. Order online or stop by the store to get your next dose of fruits and veggies!

The Treehouse

We’ve eaten at The Treehouse twice in the last few weeks, but they’ve got us wanting to go back tonight! Any night and every night, really. For mains, we’ve had charred octopus with English pea puree and smoked trout roe, and our favorite of favorites: the uni cacio e pepe. That last dish is so savory and creamy that we eat it noodle by noodle so that it’s last as long as we can make it. Our description won’t do it justice, no matter how hard we try, so we’ll say this – get one extra order for the table because you won’t want to share yours!

Preservation Station Nashville

Preservation Station

We get excited for antiques and anything salvaged. It shouldn’t surprise you to hear that we spend way too many hours watching HGTV dreaming about how we’d flip houses, decorate our imaginary homes with beautiful antiques, and save prized architectural pieces from destruction. But why look at salvaged pieces on TV when you can see out in person?…

Avo Nashville

Avo

Avo’s plant-based menu is full of foods you would expect to see at a regular restaurant – pizza, pad thai, pasta and more. We weren’t sure how a raw, vegan, gluten-free pizza would taste – you know we love the real deal – but our tastebuds were wowed by the impressive flavor. Avo also offers Sunday brunch, and it’s just as delicious as their lunch and dinner menu.

Nashville Fashion Week

Nashville Fashion Week

The shows were fabulous – a total of four featuring Francesca Marotta, Brooke Atwood, Michael Drummond of Project Runway, and Kallmeyer. We were awed by flowing fabrics, stunning models, and how into the shows the audience was. We could have watched for hours! The bar served specialty cocktails like the Nashville Mule, featuring Bang Candy Co syrups, and servers passed platters of fried chicken and pulled pork sandwiches from Puckett’s. Be sure to check out the rest of this week’s events and take advantage of the discounts local stores are offering. Get your fashion on!

Hester and Cook Nashville

Hester & Cook

Hester & Cook Design Group creates some of the coolest paper products on the market – and most are made right here in Nashville! In the Hester & Cook storefront, you’ll find flour sack towels printed with brightly colored designs, gift cards for every occasion, inventive lighting made from spoons and teacups, and art prints. They also carry items made by other creative brands such as Alexa Pulitzer papers, one of our New Orleans faves. But what you really need to check out in store are the Hester & Cook placemats…
